Spring 2

Spring 1

Spring 1- Moon Zoom

Welcome back Class 2!


The countdown has begun. Are you ready for blast off?


This half term, we’ll travel through space to learn about the Solar System.  We will be learning about space exploration and what it is like on the Moon with our new topic 'Moon Zoom'.

Our first story in class will be 'The way back home' by Oliver Jeffers. One day a boy finds an aeroplane in his cupboard. Up, up, up and away he flies, high into the sky. Whizzing past clouds, stars and planets until suddenly, he runs out of petrol! Miles from earth, the boy crashes into the moon and waits. Just as he is beginning to get cold and lonely, a friendly martian appears from the darkness, also with a broken aircraft. Together they come up with a super plan to float the boy back down to earth to collect his toolbox. Can the boy find his way back home safely and will he ever make it back up to the moon to rescue his friend?


Next we will be focussing on writing Biographies...have you heard of an explorer called Neil Armstrong? 




Year 1 Spelling rules




In order to make the transition to cursive (joined) handwriting easier later on in school, we have moved to precursive handwriting in Year 1. This will allow the children to see where the letters join together and also allows the pencil to flow more freely without coming off the paper. 

Year 2 will move onto cursive writing when they are confident with their letter joins.


We have invested in a fantastic scheme called 'Letter Join' that also gives children access at home with a class log in. 


Our class is going to be using an online tool called Seesaw, it’s a secure online learning journal where children can create and upload their work to document their learning. Your child will add things like photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings to their Seesaw journal.

Seesaw journals are private and only accessible by the teacher, students, and parents.  

PE - PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays, delivered by the Lancashire sports partnership. All children must wear suitable clothing.
